Glass Fellowship is Fully Funded

Glass PortraitThanks to the generous responses of an anonymous donor, former students, faculty, and family members, the Bryan P. Glass Student Scholarship/Fellowship in Zoology Fund passed the critical $25,000 mark in November 2013. The fund was initiated in August 2012 through a gift from Dr. Glass’s former student Geneva Murray. Dr. Glass was a faculty member in the Department of Zoology for approximately 40 years and served as Curator of Vertebrates. His efforts brought the Collection of Vertebrates to international attention, and it continues to provide irreplaceable materials for research and teaching at OSU. Now that the Glass Fund is fully endowed, a scholarship/fellowship will be provided each year to one or more students enrolled in the Department of Zoology and incorporating experience with the OSU Collection of Vertebrates as part of their academic experience. The first Glass Fund Award will be presented at the Department’s Annual Banquet in March 2014.
